BE NICE

DO YOU FILL YOUR DAY WITH SERVING & GRATITUDE?

Ruth

IF YOU DO~ YOUR DAY AND GOD WILL SERVE YOU  LOVE!!!!!

 

and……WITH JOY & PEACE THAT
IS MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY RICHES OR EARTHLY RELATIONSHIP !

WHEN YOU GIVE …REALLY SACRIFICE SOMETHING FOR A STRANGER OR BETTER YET
AN “ENEMY” IN NEED….

YOU WILL SEE LOVE AND GOD IN A WHOLE NEW WAY!

LOVE & FORGIVENESS ARE “THE HEAVENLY HOME” EVERYONE SEARCHES FOR….

KINDNESS & SACRIFICIAL HUMBLY LOVE ( LIKE JESUS’) IS THE ANSWER
AND EVERYONE CAN CHOOSE HIS WAY ~ BY LETTING GOD ADOPT US INTO
HIS FAMILY!….IF YOU AGREE …WE ARE FAMILY & LIVING HEAVEN ….

HERE & NOW!!!!

 

TRY IT….KINDNESS & LOVE MULTIPLY FASTER THAN ANY CONTAGIOUS DISEASE!

TO GET LOVE & KINDNESS ~ GIVE IT AWAY FIRST…..

 

WE CAN NOT OUT GIVE GOD OR A TRUE LOVE!!
IT KEEPS COMING BACK…..

 

LOVE SOMEONE TODAY….

A CARD ….EMAIL….TEXT…CALL OR VISIT

ESPECIALLY A SMILE & HUG….starting with yourself as if YOUR MOM

WAS THE PERFECT MOM LOVING & HUGGING YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME

….NOW!

THIS IS THE MOMENT WE HAVE…

BE KIND

BE NICE

~grateful for the sacrificial example of the mother of Jesus ~ YESHUA! and all of us with mother's heart's today....especially the ones who are weeping... may we be "held" in wings of love!~

~grateful for the sacrificial example of the mother of Jesus ~ YESHUA! and all of us with mother’s heart’s today….especially the ones who are weeping… may we be “held” in wings of love!~

R HEAVENLY HOME

20160703_164252What IF….heaven is not only a future destination but a state of mind we can ENJOY NOW?

What IF…. HEAVEN… …IS A MOMENT BY MOMENT CHOICE? ( the Heavenly KINGDOM within our thoughts)

What IF YOUR BEST & TRUEST HEART’S DESIRE’S are ALSO GOD’S…Psalm 37:4

What IF FAITH COULD BE SEEN?….

Would IT STILL BE FAITH?

Don’t YOU LIKE IT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS THEY HAVE FAITH IN YOU without proof?

 

TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH…..

IMG_3246_2I LIVE THE IMPOSSIBLE DAILY!

EVEN TEARS WIPED SUPERNATURALLY BRINGING WAVES OF RAINBOWS SO GLORIOUS that I know what is not finished & complete in the lives of those I love

WILL BE  …SOON & VERY SOON! Revelation 21

Revelation 22 GRACE TO YOU NOW!

I LIVE IN FAITH & SPEAK IT DAILY OVER MYSELF AND ALL I GREET!

 

WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE MOST ….BECOMES YOU….

ARE YOU BE~ COMING

or un be coming?

I AM HOME NOW.

I PRACTICE REMEMBERING that I was made BY A LOVING GOD
TO GIVE & RECEIVE LOVE …and THAT IS MY FOCUS ….ALMOST CONTINUALLY…

WITH RARELY A SIGH OR A FEAR THAT I DO NOT QUICKLY MAKE JOY BY BEING GRATEFUL & REMEMBERING TO LOVE & RESPOND LOVINGLY IN TRUTH!

 

BE HOME….FEEL AT HOME….LIVE & MOVE & HAVE YOUR BEING WHERE YOU ARE WELCOME & CELEBRATED not just

tolerated….IT TAKES PRACTICE…because we MUST LOOK IN A MIRROR TO SEE
WHAT WE ARE REFLECTING & EXPECTING WITH OUR
SMILES & ATTITUDES …or lack thereof…. WHAT YOU GET IS USUALLY WHAT YOU EXPECT TO GET .

IF JESUS TRULY IS THE WAY…..the ONLY WAY HOME TO THE FATHER….WHICH IS MY TRUTH….READ JESUS WORDS & WATCH HIS LIFE & HOW HE LIVED & LOVED & SHOOK UP PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT LIVING LOVE!

JESUS= “THE WAY” IS THE WAY OF AGAPE LOVE….LOVE LIKE I Corinthians 13 THE GREATEST CHAPTER ON LOVE EVER WRITTEN….

LOVE IS PATIENT….KIND…..and SO MUCH MORE….!!!

READ IT…MEDITATE ON IT…MEMORIZE IT…AND YOU WILL BECOME LOVE…

AND FIND YOU ARE HOME….FOR THAT IS HEAVEN ….THE PLACE WHERE LOVE IS
NOW & FOR ETERNITY…..John 17:3

A PLACE & STATE OF PERPETUAL PEACE AND SHABBAT REST ….the WAY JESUS LIVED IN HARMONY WITH NATURE & HIS FATHER…and all who chose the WAY OF TRUTH & LOVE

a JUDEO~ CHRISTIAN practice made PERFECT THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF LOVE OF THE LAW OF LOVE & KINDNESS…not a letter or a law of lists…..

THE LAW OF LOVE

like Paul wrote about in Galatians 5

YOU CAN NOT SEE THE WIND ( the SPIRIT) BUT YOU SURELY FEEL & SEE WHAT THE WIND & SPIRIT DOES…..

ASK GOD FOR THE SPIRIT OF LOVE & FORGIVENESS and

GOD THE FATHER, JESUS THE SON & THE SPIRIT LIKE A MOTHER
WILL WELCOME YOU HOME….

AND SO WILL I WITH A BIG SMILE  A BIG WELCOME CELEBRATION AND
A HUG  THAT WILL HOLD US FOREVER
IN THE DANCE OF GRACE….

lovingly

grace “aunt Ruth”

as always

your friend

please take the time to enJOY this PRESENT ….DAY and moment and a song

from me to you with love

BEING WELL is TRUE WEALTH

photo copyI have simple picnics here daily including today by this mini waterfall where I live ~

HOW REFRESHING & SIMPLE TO JUST LISTEN TO BUBBLING WATER!

and yet…..JESUS REFRESHES ME EVEN MORE and through the years without the outer

sanctuary that I now see everywhere ~God supplied it supernaturally by faith!

NOTHING AND NO ONE SATISFIES ME LIKE JESUS WORDS & LOVE for over 50+ years!

TODAY I celebrated my 55th birthday by having a simple day with those I love most

a simple walk & picnic ~receiving calls, texts, cards & gifts from

all over with special surprises by my GOD ALL DAY LONG~ AS USUAL!

There were several ” disappointing turns of events & changes of plans ”

But by remaining grateful & counting blessings these all become divine appointments to

CHOOSE CONTENTMENT!

WHEN we practice CONTENTMENT & GRATITUDE to the GOD who created & loves us

we are rewarded in a myriad of ways but primarily by a PEACE that can not be explained unless you experience it too!!!

ASK GOD NOW FOR THIS PEACE ~ mean it and GOD WILL SHOW UP !!!

Perhaps not the way you think because our GOD is a MYSTERIOUS & AWESOME SPIRIT
and LOVES TO SURPRISE US PERSONALLY!!!!

Each day I feel celebrated and CHOOSE TO MAKE IT A GREAT DAY because I choose to CELEBRATE LIFE and RE:BIRTH DAILY!!!~~~~

MOMENT BY MOMENT ~~~ NO MATTER WHAT & NO MATTER WHERE I AM

and NO MATTER WHO I AM WITH!
Speaking the TRUTH IN LOVE!

There does not have to be a reason when you understand that the CREATOR OF THE
UNIVERSE LOVES YOU AND HAS GOOD PLANS FOR YOU IF YOU WILL JUST
LOOK TO HIM LIKE A GOOD GOOD FATHER ( and mother as well) in fact

read the BIBLE to see how many motherly phrases God uses for himself and HIS spirit.

AND AFTER ALL in Genesis 1 GOD made man & woman in HIS IMAGE ~ MALE & FEMALE !

SO GOD’S IMAGE IS BOTH.  I miss both my parents voices today

(since they have both been gone to heaven over 20 years )

wishing me a happy birthday and yet somehow I heard them in different ways & even similiar ways through my own voice & others singing to me even in other languages and

God’s unexpected manifestations ALL DAY LONG because that’s what a GOOD GOOD

FATHER DOES….DELIGHTS TO GIVE US WHAT WE NEED &  THAT TURNS OUT TO BE JUST WHAT WE WANT!!!

click on these RED WORDS TO HEAR A FAVORITE SONG OF MINE THAT EXPRESSES
MY HEART RIGHT NOW:

GOOD GOOD FATHER

 

SO HAPPY RE: BIRTHDAY DAILY TO ALL OF US!

CELEBRATE LIFE LOVE & LAUGHTER
JESUS WAY
HALLELUYAH

JOY & PAIN of LOVING

BIRTH IS THE MOST THRILLING OF EARTHLY EXPERIENCES BUT IT IS OFTEN THE MOST

CHALLENGING AS WELL~especially the next 100 years or if the child dies before the mother!   IN other words LIFE IS a BEAUTIFUL MESS & BITTER~SWEET!!!…

 

…A MESTER~ PIECE ….orchestrated by the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE WHO CAN MAKE
ALL THINGS TURN FOR GOOD IN TIME IF WE WILL ONLY TRUST & DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING!photo

THE SMILE on my face is the thrill of a water birth at home after hours of labor & laughter to bring forth our last son! My 12 year old daughter, ( still an amazing photographer!)took

this photo at the moment of my last of 10 births ( 8 are still living on this earth).

Anything worthwhile takes effort & even a certain amount of pain to learn to breath with & through to manage life well. I got very good at practicing breathing with my many births

( the last 5 at home !)

Life IS about taking DEEP BREATHS FOR LIFE!

It is the first & most important principle of good health~

all three aspects of good health: BODY ~ SOUL~ SPIRIT BREATHING!

AND DEEP BELLY LAUGHTER COVERS ALL THREE ASPECTS WHEN DONE PROPERLY!

TODAY my oldest son would have turned 26 ~ but sadly Luke Henry Clifford was sang into

Jesus arms & heavenly peace at the only 1 week old as his father & I wept and began the grieving process that only someone having lost a child can understand.

Doctors misdiagnosed  several times the “problem” pregnancy and ultimately GOD had different plans for our precious & beloved first born son.

ONLY GOD can give the peace that I experienced at those critical moments when the world

seemed to be falling apart .

GOD has carried me & guided me and I THANK GOD DAILY for the gifts I learned during

Luke’s short life AND death and though I miss him dearly, I am SO GRATEFUL for the GIFT OF
LIFE & DEATH because GOD IS NOT ONLY WITH ME BUT IN ME.

ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU THE WAY.

Jesus example of TRUSTING HIS FATHER & FORGIVING & LOVING ALL
IS THE WAY
IS THE TRUTH
IS THE LIFE

 

AND THIS IS THE LIFE
I WANT TO LIVE & DO PRACTICE DAILY TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY WITH GOD’S HELP
WON’T YOU JOIN ME?

FOLLOW JESUS John 17:3

IN FULLY EMBRACING THE JOY & PAIN OF LOVING EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE!

lovingly

love grand mother always

Blessings on all the mothers & grand mothers today & every day!

My dear mom always said mother’s day is every day and said we should treat our mothers accordingly! Now that my mom has been dead for 20 years, I savor her words & hear myself repeating the little quotes & stories I used to hear her share with me & others.

I remember her beautiful loving blue eyes and see them often in the people I greet & I even get to hear her voice on occasion when I meet someone with the same German dialect and what a treat that is, as we converse in my Mother Tongue.

I remember how she loved beauty & flowers & there was always a flower waiting on my nightstand growing up and pictures she had painted & quilts with hand created stitches of love.

I have a love for beauty & flowers thanks to my dear mother who gave me wealth in ways that money can not buy. She read me stories & sang songs & held my hand on our long walks to the store. She, as well as my dad, greeted everyone with a cheery hello or a wave. How grateful I am for their example in many areas and especially of how to treat strangers and love all people.

photo copy               “In the heavens above, The  angels, whispering to one another,         Can find, among their burning terms of love, None so devotional as that of   “Mother.”                                           ~ Edgar Allan Poe

 

I choose to pay tribute to my mother for the goodness & beauty that she taught me~

though she & I & all mother’s have our faults ~ she was the BEST MOTHER for me &

I honor her this day with sharing her photo of me above at 8 days old almost 55 years ago

and the picture with her & I ( 5 months pregnant with my first child over 35 years ago).

How special to be able to cherish these memories through photos.

I remember my mother often talking with tears wishing I could have met her mother and

telling me how kind she was to everyone and brave during WWII in Germany with bombs dropping & how with 6 little girls to raise alone she still made time to help those in need around her.

Never having met my grandmother in Germany I realized that through a few cherished pictures & my mother’s stories of her kindness & sacrifices helping so many people, including many Jews in Germany that she is VERY much alive in my heart as a hero and a legacy to live in & carry forth.

May we leave behind a LEGACY OF LOVE as mothers, fathers & friends to all.

A NURTURING & ENCOURAGING SPIRIT SHOULD LIVE IN ALL OF US NOT JUST MOTHERS!
One of my dearest friends, Lynn has no children of her own and yet has been a mother to so many as a High school teacher to deaf students for decades.

SO BLESSINGS TO ALL THE NURTURING HEARTS TODAY ~ MAKING A DIFFERENCE

“TO THE CHILD IN US ALL”

EAT GOOD WORDS FOR LIFE

YOU ARE what you eat ~ especially YOUR WORDS!

photoWhen we plan a special event or party the menu is a huge part of the planning.

How we think about food tells us a lot about what is important to us.

As important as our meal planning is and should be,

it is more important to think about the

WORDS we EAT all day long.

We do not live by just our “daily bread” but by the words that we eat & the words that
“eat US”.

When we dwell on negative words we have a negative outcome just as deadly or perhaps more deadly than “JUNK FOOD” or ” SPOILED FOOD”.

FOOD poisoning comes in many forms ~ SO PLEASE WATCH YOUR EATS & YOUR WORDS.

May we SPEAK WORDS OF LIFE FOR LIFE~
Reading the Bible is so refreshing & life giving and I am continually surprised that more people do not know the BEST HEALTH SECRETS are found in the BIBLE.

When we ask God to speak to us ~ He will and one of the best ways to understand God’s thoughts & ways is in Nature & the Inspired WORD.

Unfortunately, many religions have used the Bible to control people & take their money & worse.

How sad , that God’s intended Love letter and life coaching guide has been misused & misunderstood & mostly just ignored.

Open the WORDS OF LIFE !~  today & every day and EAT THE BEST WORDS FOR LIFE
& LOVE & TRUE SATISFACTION. FOR it truly is the LOVE STORY OF ALL LOVE STORIES!

READ THE BOOK OF RUTH FOR EXAMPLE.

RUTH is only four short chapters & less than 15 minutes long and it is the BEST love story in the WORLD~ even BETTER than Shakespeare because it IS TRUE. Ruth’s grave is still in Israel in the town of Bethlehem and she was the great grandmother of King David and

is one of the few women listed in the genealogy of Jesus AND THE ONLY WOMAN IN the BIBLE DESCRIBED AS A VIRTUOUS* WOMAN BY NAME !

It is a picture of what GOD wants to do for each one of us. GOD wants to

REDEEM us back into a loving relationship with respect & joy & abundant life.

Just like the whole Bible the Books of Ruth & Esther are Powerful reminders that

GOD looks on the heart and that in the end LOVE & TRUTH WILL PREVAIL.

The BIBLE is a story of a love for each one of us by the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE wanting

us to be A FAMILY FOR LIFE & LOVE & LIBERTY for all!

Living in Heavenly Peace even here even NOW!

Proverbs 16:24

Also choose your friends wisely & make sure they inspire you to be your BEST YOU

and that you encourage each other with UP WORDS so together we can GROW FOR LIFE!

 

May we be a taste of HEAVEN daily to those we greet & meet ….

starting in the MIRROR !

photo copyLast week I got to visit one of my dearest friends in Portland & we enJOYED

shining the LOVE OF JESUS everywhere we went MOSTLY WITH OUR SMILES & JOY!

I pray the same ABUNDANT LIFE FOR YOU ….

start with good smiles & words & good food to eat !
RAW ! RAW ! RAW !…..Yes do eat lots of RAW food ~ BACK TO EDEN

the garden of good eatin & LOVIN SMILES!

 

A SMILE IS THE SAME IN EVERY LANGUAGE ~

SO SHINE LOVE & LIGHT ~~~

NO MATTER THE WEATHER
ALL DAY & NIGHT!

A VALENTINE FOR YOU

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAILY!

May all our days be full of contentment with JOY!

When things do not turn out as expected ~ CHOOSE JOY by being GRATEFUL and looking for ways to make the best of the situation instead of focusing what you did not get or do not have. BE THANKFUL~ count your blessings and SING! I thought I was going to see a special friend tonight but that did not work out so I had an opportunity to adjust my thinking in order to not be discouraged. I chose to be GRATEFUL & do something different ~ LIKE ENJOY THE DAY ANYWAY & WRITE YOU A VALENTINE!!!

 

Holidays can be a highlight or a dark “night,” so to speak,

depending on your attitude and perspective, especially if you live alone or do not have a significant other in your life. For years now I have been alone but because of my faith & close relationship with GOD the Father, I have never really felt “alone.”

I have learned to go where I am celebrated not where I am tolerated and had to really decide what my CORE VALUES are should I choose to get in another relationship.

Valentine’s Day is marketed everywhere for weeks & it can be inspiring or depressing. I have always enjoyed making each day special and it is fun when there is a theme especially one for sharing & showing your love. Instead of focusing just on romance how about focusing on the reminder just to show more love & express it those most significant in your life.

Be mindful of what input is doing to your mind & attitude.

The media would like to “sell us happiness” or make us long for something or someone

we do not have.

Expectations can be so damaging.

This week I had the gift of being alone for days at the ocean to write & create & catch up on just some needed reflection and re:creation alone with my creator. I had the opportunity to be in a cabin by the beach with no car & yet really wanted to get Valentine’s made for my children, grandchildren & the special friends I have in my life.

I got to be extra creative by seeing what I had with me & the few basic things in the cabin.

What fun I have been having and have been delighted by the many ways the CREATOR has been deLIGHTing me for Valentine’s week! The myriad of birds visiting daily and the spring flowers coming up early along with songs on the radio or verses from the Bible have me constantly GIVING THANKS while the sun has been playing pick-a-boo between sunrise & the most beautiful sunsets!

photo

Psalm 100 says we should enter God’s courts with thanksgiving & praise and years ago I decided to purpose to stay in God’s court by practicing GRATITUDE ~ NO MATTER WHAT.

WHAT A WONDERFUL HABIT and SECRET it has been for me. I am able to choose JOY & PEACE that keep me very present and not miss the BLESSING of each moment & person.

SO ~ my BEST gift to YOU , dear heart,

is to share my “secrets of JOY” and say a prayer & sing it “over you” that you would choose to STOP and take a DEEP BREATH of GRATITUDE to YOUR CREATOR and send you

some of my extra JOY & PEACE that overflows from God’s THRONE OF GRACE!

lovingly,

with a song in my heart & on my lips

grace’t*Ruth

JOY to the WORLD ~ the LORD HAS COME !

Let earth Receive HER KING~

LET EVERY HEART ~  PREPARE A ROOM….and HEAVEN & NATURE WILL SING!

HEAVEN & NATURE DOES SING

AND SO DO I  ~ JOIN ME!!!

HA HA HALLELUIA

Snail Mail for Valentine’s DAY

photo 1 copyGreetings!

Anyone else write “old~fashioned” notes and mail them by Post anymore?

I CHERISH the notes I got from my parents & friends through the years & still

LOVE a letter or card in the mail today.

THINK ABOUT IT…the WRITTEN WORD IS SO POWERFUL when you can HOLD

it in your hand & re~read it and really meditate on the enCOURAGEment that

a letter can bring.

Emails are just not the same for me and I think if people are honest they would agree.

I DO APPRECIATE MODERN technology ~ BUT IT TAKES EFFORT NOT TO BE CONTROLLED BY ELECTRONIC GADGETRY. THE COMPUTER should be considered a DANGEROUS POWER TOOL to be used WITH CAUTION and with GREAT CARE so that we are not hurt & controlled by these “time-saving devices.”

Romans 12:2 says we should not be changed into what the world’s ways are but have our minds changed by re~newing our minds with God’s ways.

Live a life of giving love in many ways and it will return to you someday more than you can imagine.

TIME WELL SPENT IS LETTERS SENT TO YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS when you can.

TRY IT ~ (again!) and I think it will bring JOY & HEALTH TO YOUR SOUL and someone else’s too! AT LEAST FOR VALENTINES DAY?

BUT ANY time is a good time for Valentine MAIL.

Send LOVE daily and watch it GROW & MULTIPLY…

BE CREATIVE…

lovingly

graceanneruth
